    Kanayo, Mr Ibu, Rollas, others mourn Bruno Iwuoha

    The death of veteran actor, Bruno Iwuoha, has continued to attract tributes from his colleagues and fans.

    Iwuoha died on Saturday at the age of 68 after a prolonged battle with diabetes, and is survived by a wife and six children.

    Some of his colleagues who spoke with Sunday Scoop said he would be missed for the fatherly advice he readily dished out to them.

    Actor, Kanayo Kanayo, said, “The news of his death saddened me because we were very close. In fact, I called his phone severally but I was not able to get through. It is a very big loss to the movie industry. He had respect for the industry. It is a personal loss for me because of the bond we shared. Anytime we were on location, he was either in my room or I would be in his. We talked at length on different issues.”

    Comic actor, John Okafor, aka Mr Ibu, also said, “I just heard about his death some minutes ago and I am still in shock that Bruno is no more. The type of person he was made it possible for people to emulate him. He succeeded in making good use of his age in teaching the younger ones. Even though it is painful that he is no more, I take solace in the fact that he was a good elder. He told me stories about life and he lived with caution. We also ate together. It is unfortunate that he is no more but we have to bear it.”

    The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas also added that the late sexagenarian paid his dues. He said, “I received the news of his death with great shock. He was a very good fellow and a dedicated member of the Actors Guild of Nigeria. Even at his age, he was one person that always called to ask what he was owing the guild (dues and levies) and what he was supposed to do. He paid all his dues as at when due. His illness was sad and we tried in our own way to support him but at a point, the illness got out of hand. I pray that God grants him eternally rest. I would really miss his fatherly advice and support.”
